honoring the voices in your head
Exorcising the demons
in person at 297 Page Street
Sunday, July 10, 10 am - 4 pm
Looking carefully at who you are in conversation with in your fiction is important. Who are you speaking to/with- writers, dead and alive, friends, family? Additionally, whose voice keeps you from speaking truth, keeps you mired in shame and fear to break silence? Coming into consciousness about both of these strains is an important part of any writer’s journey.
This all-day class will explore ways to both honor the voices in your head, while exorcising the demons, and get you writing your truest story.
Like all Page Street Classes, this workshop is limited to 12 participants.
